Are You Worried About Gum Disease?

Our minimally-invasive, modern high-tech and holistic Portland gum disease treatments really work!

Damage to your gums, including infections and periodontal disease, can be very serious. There are direct links between gum disease and heart disease, stroke, diabetes, as well as other ailments throughout the body.

Periodontal disease puts your teeth and underlying bone structure at risk. Teeth and bone can be lost due to untreated periodontal issues. Not only can this mean loss of teeth, but if left untreated, it may also cost you your life!

Over 50% of Americans are estimated to suffer from some form of periodontal disease and many cases go untreated.

Why do people avoid treatment? Fear of traditional treatments. Traditional periodontal treatments are generally painful, requiring extensive cutting, scraping, stitches, and long healing times.

Blodgett Dental Care takes a different approach. Our modern, minimally-invasive periodontal treatments heal quickly and are essentially pain-free. Keep reading to find out more about the periodontal treatment options offered by Dr. Blodgett and learn how he can help you ease gum discomfort and stop tooth loss.

“I had the LANAP procedure at Blodgett Dental Care. I can’t speak highly enough of the procedure, or of the staff that performed it. I would recommend this procedure, and this provider, to anyone.”

Dental Implants

Dental implants are the best way to restore your smile when you have missing teeth.

If you’ve lost a tooth (or teeth) due to periodontal disease or injury, Blodgett Dental Care can help. Our dental implants are placed using an advanced 3D x-ray system and advanced computer fabrication technology.

Unlike dentures, dental implants are made from natural materials, are sustainable and preserve bone and gum tissue, just like a natural tooth. They’re also more secure and stable than dentures and can be used to replace one or more missing teeth.

We offer Zirconia dental implants that are naturally white and have no risk of corrosion, as well as traditional titanium implants. We believer that our patients should have the right to choose the best care for themselves.

LANAP® Procedure

The LANAP® procedure is an advanced, minimally-invasive alternative to traditional gum disease treatments. It has been proven and FDA-approved as a regenerative periodontal technique. Traditional gum disease treatments are painful and require the use of a scalpel to cut away both diseased and healthy gum tissue.

Using a laser, the LANAP® procedure removes only diseased gum tissue and targets the bacteria that cause gum disease. There’s less pain, less bleeding, and a shorter recovery time, and the procedure usually requires no pain medication.

Pinhole® Gum Rejuvenation

You don’t have to live with receding gums!

Gum recession can be caused by gingivitis, periodontitis, orthodontic treatment or the natural aging process. As gums recede the roots of the teeth become exposed and lead to increased sensitivity to hot and cold foods, as well as tooth decay and risk for erosion..

As one of the first dentists in the world to be trained in the Pinhole® Gum Rejuvenation technique, Dr. Blodgett is able to reverse gum recession without scalpels or stitches. This revolutionary technique offers instant results and virtually no pain.

LAPIP® Procedure

If you have a dental implant installed in your mouth, you need to be extra vigilant when it comes to gum disease around your implant referred to as “peri-implantitis”.. Using advanced laser therapies, Dr. Blodgett is able to treat peri-implantitis and regenerate lost bone around implants.

The LAPIP® procedure is less invasive than other treatments and can help your dental implants last longer without the drawbacks of traditional gum disease treatments.

Perio Protect

There’s an epidemic of gum disease which can lead to painful inflammation, a dangerous infection, tooth loss, and damage to the bone and soft tissue in your mouth. Brushing with a toothbrush doesn’t offer complete protection from gum disease.

And science has now conclusively shown that active gum disease (and teeth with root canals) lead directly to heart attacks, strokes, and diabetes. It is a very serious issue!

Perio Protect is a revolutionary at-home treatment that treats, prevents, and even reverses gum disease.

Targeting the anaerobic environment under the gums, hydrogen peroxide gel is applied to the teeth and gums using a tray that is custom-made to fit your mouth. The tray forms a firm seal around the gumline and the gel attacks and kills bacteria that cause gum disease deep below the gum line.

An added benefit of the Perio Protect system is that because it uses hydrogen peroxide as its active ingredient, it will also help whiten your teeth!
